Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in The Villages - Villa On The green

Enjoy All The Avtivities the Villages Has To Offer In A Beautiful New Villa

Summer is great in The Villages, the crowds are gone, rates greatly reduced, tee times easy to get, and no wait to eat in restaurants. Rates the same in 2015 as 2014.

Rates include 2 Resident ID's, exit clean, complementary use of the 4 person golf cart as a courtesy to our guests, and taxes. All Inclusive. Much cheaper than a hotel room and you have a golf front villa with the use of all The Villages amenities.

New 4/14, right on the golf course, and close to the pool, new town square, and activities. In the summer the crowds are gone and there's no wait to get into a restaurant or get tee times. Plus, the grand kids are out of school, with Disney an hour away, and air boat rides, alligator farms, and state parks within half hour of The Villages. Plus they love to ride in the golf cart with Grampy and Nana. Spend the month and have part of the time with children and grand kids and part of the month enjoying all the amenities The Villages has to offer. July and August seem so far away, but now is the time to book, hold the house, and plan that get away when the rates are so low. Grandparent Camp is held every summer and will be memorable for all generations.

Each house in The Villages has 2 Resident ID's allowing 2 people to golf for no charge and use the amenities. If you will have more than 2 people in the house, you can get 2 guest passes and your guest will have to pay to play golf and may have to pay to use the amenities. *We provide you with 2 Resident ID's and not guest ID's. With a Resident ID you can play golf for free and do all the things that a resident can do. Guest passes do not give you the same privileges. When renting a house in The Villages make sure you're getting a Resident ID and not a guest pass.

Men's Callaway Strata 13 piece golf set with bag and ladies Callaway Strata 11 piece golf set with bag are provided for our guests use during their stay. (Both are starter sets) If you're a golfer, there is no need for you to bring your clubs. If you've thought about learning the game of golf, but didn't want to invest in clubs, this is a perfect time to take a lesson in The Villages and use one of the 30 plus golf courses.

All inclusive pricing.*** The rate includes Sumter County Taxes, Resident ID transfer to your name, departure cleaning, beds made, and towels provided. There is a Keyless entry system. You will be provided with your own personal code to access the property. This will ensure your safety knowing there are no keys floating around from previous guests. The code to the door is changed between guests. WiFi available through Comcast and we have not had any issues with getting service.

The new in 2014, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa is located on the golf course with an amazing water view from the screened in lanai. No neighbors behind you and walls on either side for total privacy. It’s located less than one mile from Brownwood Square, the recreation center, and the pool. The best of 2 worlds.

There are 30 golf courses that you can golf for free and 35 golf courses that you can pay to play. The Country Club Restaurants are open to all residents. There’s tennis, pickle ball, shuffle board, and over 1,000.00 clubs and activities. Nightly, there is entertainment in each of the Town Squares.

Each bedroom has a queen size bed, TV, and DVD player. The living area has a 40” flat screen TV and Blu-ray player and comfortable seating for 6. The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances and equipped for the casual cook or the gourmet chef. All Pfaltzgraff dishes and utensils. There is seating for 6 at the counter high table. The screened lanai has a table with seating for 6, special dinnerware for enjoying your meal outside and also a fountain for your relaxation. The triple door leading to the lanai has 2 sliders that open and increases the open living area.

Mailbox, Pinellas Pool, Bocce, and shuffle board 1/2 mile

Big Cypress Rec Center, pool bocce, shuffle board,

tennis, pickle ball 3/10 mile

Pinellas Plaza 4/10 mile

Eisenhower Rec Center 1 mile

Close to all the activity, but when you want privacy and peace and quiet, the villa is the place for down time.

In one year we have had 19 positive reviews from our guests. We strive to correct anything that needs attention and want our guests to have 100% guest satisfaction. Our primary concern is for our guests to be comfortable, have a easy process in booking, and leave the villa feeling like they want to return for their next visit to The Villages

About Gary and Jeanne Smith

We're 3 years from retirement and hope The Villages will be a home we can enjoy as snowbirds.

Gary and Jeanne Smith purchased this villa in 2014

Why Gary and Jeanne Smith chose The Villages

We fell in love with the location. The villa has a back yard facing the golf course, with a beautiful view from so many areas of the villa. It's within walking distance to Brownwood Square, the pool, and recreation center. It's close to everything, but when in the house, you feel you're in your own world.

What makes this villa unique

The view! The villa is brand new and close to everything you need to have the total Village experience. Or, you can simply sit on the lanai, enjoy the beautiful view, and read your favorite book.

Our stay at The Villages was excellent. The 3055 Eastwood Terrace was just as VRBO described. Gary and Jeanne Smith did a great job decorating the

3 br 2 ba villa and provided a golf cart, his and her bikes and golf clubs. Our

only dissappointment was that the time went too fast!

Owner's Response: Sue and Dan, Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. We're glad you had an enjoyable time in The VIllages for the month of April. December 2015 is open and you could get out of the Michigan snow and cold! We love guests that treat the villa as they would their own and are always welcome back. Thank you. Gary and Jeanne

We rented this house for 2 months. We felt at home as soon as we got there. The house was beautifully decorated, very comfortable and very clean. The view is awesome and watching the golfers was so enjoyable. It is close to town, grocery stores and you can see the Big Cypress Rec center from your back yard. Jeanne and Gary are so nice and do everything to make your stay the best. This house is truly beautiful and has the best location and great view out the lanai. We would love to come back in Feb. and Mar. but the owners will be there so we are looking for another home but we are so spoiled having this house, it will be hard to find another one like this.

Villa on the Green

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at your villa. Everything was perfect. There wasn't one thing that we wanted that wasn't provided. We enjoyed watching the golfers out our lanai and couldn't believe people golfing at 7:30 in the morning in the rain. Marv golfed and I took line dance lessons to the tune of 6 hours a week. We would gladly rent your villa next year but it is already rented. We were able to rent another one for next year.

Owner's Response: Vicki and Marv, Thank you for taking the time to write the review. Free golf is such a great thing and nothing can keep the avid golfer from keeping their tee time. We too are amazed at the conditions some actually play golf. I'm sorry January 2016 is booked. There are so many great places to rent in The Villages and happy you found the perfect location. If you find you are in The Villages in the future, we hope you will consider our villa. Gary and Jeanne

December in The Villages

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. We did not use the golf cart because our days were filled with activities associated with buying a house there. Your home was beautifully appointed. We enjoyed the lanai and watching players on the golf course. We will not be renting your lovely home again because we did buy a home in the Villages which we will use as a second home. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Owner's Response: Fred, Jamie said you were the perfect guest and we're sorry you won't be renting from us again, but know how the draw is to The Villages. You are our 4th guest to buy while in our villa and wonder if it's something in the air! Congratulations on your purchase. It was nice speaking to you during the reservation process and would love to meet you in person. We hope you have a healthy, happy 2015 and enjoy all The Villages has to offer. Gary and Jeanne

Wonderful Screened Lanai with View of First Green of Palmetto Golf Course

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful new home with many comforts. Owners were easy to work with and would answer questions promptly, both before and during our stay. We enjoyed breakfast each morning on the screened lanai and woke early several days to enjoy spectacular sunrises. We played six executive golf courses during our stay. Be sure to sign up for thevillages.net internet service for $8 per month to assist with making tee times. This is available at Sumter Landing and can be done after obtaining resident I.D. cards. Golf cart worked great and was a fun way to get around and was also useful on the local courses. Residence is only a few blocks from Big Cypress Recreation Center which features six pickleball courts and two tennis courts. Nearby Brownwood Square has several good restaurants, including Riccardi's Italian and Gators Dockside (a great new sports bar). The new Publix grocery store at nearby Grand Traverse Plaza has excellent made-to-order sub sandwiches which we picked up several days for lunch on the lanai. Thanks for making your home available. It was a truly enjoyable vacation.

Owner's Response: Tom, Thank you for taking such good care of the villa, giving us a great idea to begin collecting ideas from the guests about the area and providing to future guests, and for doing everything from working with maintenance to accepting packages. We love the sunrise and thank you for two beautiful pictures. It is breathtaking. We fell in love with the lot and tried to make the villa feel spacious and comfortable, in spite of being less than 2,000 square feet. We're thrilled you enjoyed your stay. If you ever make the long trek back to The Villages, we hope you will consider staying in our villa. Gary and Jeanne

Our first trip to the villages

  • 5 of 5

Home was very nice fully equipped large and comfortable . We liked the view of the golf course and the close proximity to grocery store and rec centers and pools. would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the villages. Would have liked some more info on the pass for the gates , and how to work the alarms at bedside. but we had a great time. We loved all the restaurants at the championship courses. They were all excellent.

Owner's Response: Von and Dave, We're thrilled you had a good time your first trip to The Villages. I'm sorry you had problems with the alarm clocks. We've ordered a new one for each bedroom and appreciate your feedback. The gate pass should have been in the basket. We haven't figured out the gates ourselves. Some take the gate pass and others go up when approached by a vehicle. In October the Pinellas gate didn't require the gate pass due to construction still going on and we're not sure of the current status. It isn't a gated community and we will advise future guests some gates require the pass and others do not. The pass should always be carried. Otherwise when a gate pass is needed you can't go through the resident lane and have to stop to talk to the guard in the visitor lane. Thank you for your feedback for both items. It helps us know what needs to be done in FL, when we're in PA We hope if you find yourself in The Villages in the future, you will consider our villa. Gary and Jeanne

***The VRBO map is not up to date. Eastwood Terrace is not on the map and the location VRBO places the house is not accurate. I apologize and have requested VRBO update the site. Once they do so, I will remove this information and confirm the correct location on the map***

32 golf courses with no fees with your resident ID's, 11 country club courses (fee charged); Bownwood, the newest town square has nightly activities, restaurants, shopping and only one and a half miles from the villa; Pinellas Pool is half mile away and has shuffle board, boche ball, shuffle board, tennis, and pickle ball; Big Cypress Recreation Center is 3/10 mile from the villa and has a pool, boche ball, shuffle board, corn hall, tennis, pickle ball, and numerous clubs and activities; The Regional Recreation Center (Eisenhower Center) is one mile from the villa; Pinellas Plaza is 4/10 mile. All are a pleasant walk if you are so inclined, or a quick bike ride or golf cart ride away.

Sumter Landing Town Square is less than 7 miles away and takes less than 15 minutes in the golf cart.
